Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

An architectural tour through the landscape upon which William Faulkner based his fictional Yoknapatawpha County. Faulkner was a master at using descriptions of buildings to establish mood and character. Thomas S. Hines, a professor of architecture and history, and a distant relative of Faulkner's, offers us a readable and wonderfully illustrated guide to the architectural styles that informed Faulkner's writings.

Review

A possible side effect of savoring this excellent book--that is, of both reading it and lingering over its more than 100 photographs--is to imagine William Faulkner, brooding on the landscape out of which Sutpen's Hundred would arise and loom above Absalom, Absalom!. . . Mr. Hines moves with wonderful deftness among his primary themes--the development of buildings in a region, their pertinence to its character and Faulkner's handling of these matters in his fiction. -- The New York Times Book Review, Henry Taylor
